NZ Gamer - The sixth SimCity game (fifth, if you don’t count Societies) was released earlier this month, amid much expectation and controversy.
To say SimCity represents the pinnacle of gaming for some people is no understatement. Since its initial release in 1989 (based in part on a Stanislaw Lem short story), both Will Wright and Maxis have become household names. The Sims series, arguably the most popular game ever, was an offshoot of SimCity. SimCity is where it all began.
